You know, with all that space you have to work with, maybe you should consider a stand-alone router table. I don’t have nearly as big a shop but I have a separate router table. For me, any advantage in shop space is nullified by having to change setup from table saw to router. Maybe that’s just a personal thing.

As far as router lifts go, I have only personally used the Woodpecker Quicklift 420 (not the current V2, the one that preceded it). I love it! In my table, it gives me rapid, above the table bit changes, very accurate incremental height change and a level of convenience you just won’t believe until you try it!

I did direct comparisons between the Jessem and Woodpecker lifts when I made my buy decision. In the end, I paid more for the Woodpecker and never regretted it. The Woodpecker lift was built much more solidly than the Jessem lift and the Quicklift feature has saved me a ton of time just changing bits over the last 5 years!
